True, but i still believe that proxy support isn't a make or break
feature. That's just my opinion though.

That is what's done. The upnp library that Monsoon uses supports
nat-pmp aswell, I just have to update the copy that i ship with

One feature which i use which haven't been mentioned is selective
downloading: choosing which files in the torrent should be downloaded.
That is quite useful at times. An app which supports that would be
nice. Transmission and Monsoon do, but i don't think deluge does. The
others i don't know about.
